1990s Rare Rifat Ozbek Black Sheath

If this does not absolutely sum up the minimalist movement of the nineties I am not sure what would! It is a sleek, chic, sheath of black. Parachute silk for the front and a stretch nylon jersey for the back. It is supermodel length and will make you look supermodel tall. It is simple and cut to perfection. The front can open completely so you could layer this over other pieces if you wish. I love how the buttons end just below the hips so a high opening is left at the front to counter balance that sheath of blackness. Simple cap sleeves and a small, neat collar finish the dress perfectly. Excellent, unworn condition

Shoulders: 15" across
Bust: 17" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Waist: 13" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Hips: 17" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Length: 58" from mid-back of the neck to the bottom hem

Unlined and buttons to close. The fabric has some stretch.
